A very warm welcome awaits you at the Hotel Rex, which offers the comforts and luxuries of a modern hotel yet still retains its original character and splendour. The hotel was originally built for the Duke of Clarence as his summer residence when King George III held the Royal Court in Weymouth.

The 3-star Hotel Rex is situated on the Esplanade overlooking the stunning golden sands of Weymouth Beach and the Jurassic Coastline beyond. The 17th Century Harbour, with its busy fishing fleet, is always a hive of activity and just a few yards away, as is the ferry service to the Channel Islands. The town centre with its variety of shops, cafes and amenities is just a few moments walk away.

Hotel facilities include a residents’ lounge, fully licensed bar, à la carte restaurant, wireless internet access and a passenger lift that serves all floors.

All 31 bedrooms are comfortably and attractively furnished, each with en-suite bathroom, colour television, tea/coffee making facilities and direct dial telephone.

For special occasions why not upgrade to a Sea View, Superior Balcony Sea View or even our stunning Four Poster Suite which boasts glorious sea views and a luxurious marble bathroom with Jacuzzi.

Dukes Restaurant, situated in what were the original wine cellars, offers residents a choice of a high quality and reasonably priced daily table d’hote menu and an extensive à la carte menu featuring excellent steaks and locally sourced fish.

The restaurant retains the features of the wine cellars, with the old vaults now offering a more private and intimate dining experience in an alcove setting. We pride ourselves on our excellent wine list, stocking an impressive collection of wines from around the world.

The hotel bar, situated on the ground floor overlooking Weymouth Beach, is the perfect venue for an aperitif or nightcap. Serving draught beers, fine wines and an extensive selection of premium spirits and freshly ground coffee, it is the perfect venue to relax and enjoy the ambience of the hotel. In the evening, a menu of tasty bar snacks and meals is available until late.
